Water is the basis of all life. Every animal and every plant contain a substantial proportion of tree or combined water in its body, and no kind of physiological activity is possible in which the fluid doesn't play an essential part. Water is, of course, necessary for animal life, while moisture in the soil is equally imperative for the life and growth of plants and trees, though the quantity necessary varies enormously with the species. The conservation and utilization of water is thus fundamental for human welfare.

Apart from artesian water the ultimate source in all cases is rain or snowfall. Much of Nepali agriculture depends on seasonal rainfall and is therefore, very sensitive to any failure or irregularity of the same. It is clear that the adoption of techniques preventing soil erosion would also help to conserve and keep the water where it is wanted. In other words, such techniques serve a double purpose. It is evident that in a country having only a seasonal rainfall in immense quantity of rain -water must necessarily run off the ground. The collection and utilization of water is therefore of vital importance. Much of it flows down into the streams and rivers, ultimately finds its way to the sea. The harnessing of our rivers, the waters of which now mostly run to waste is a great national problem. The conservation of water supplies is the problem of afforestation. The systematic planting suitable trees and conservation of wild and untamed jungles is the most urgent needs of the nation. Such plantation would directly or indirectly prove a source of untold wealth of the country. They

would check soil erosion and conserve the rainfall from flowing away to waste. They would also provide the necessary supplies of cheap fuel and stop unnecessary waste of farmyard manure.
